The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus were launched a couple of months ago and we guess by now some of you guys thought that maybe supply constraints might have eased up. Well as it turns out it hasn’t. It has improved, sure, but according to the latest research conducted by analyst Gene Munster of Piper Jaffray, it seems that demand for Apple’s new iPhones is still outstripping its supply.
Consumer demand for Apple’s latest iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus continues to outstrip supply heading into the end of the December quarter, according to the latest research from store polls conducted by Piper Jaffray. The investment firm issued a note on Monday, a copy of which was provided to AppleInsider, that shows availability of the newest iPhone models continues to improve, but has not yet caught up with demand. Analyst Gene Munster said that his surveys found 56 percent of core configurations were in stock as of last Friday, Dec. 12. Munster expects that availability will approach 80 percent by the end of the quarter, but he had initially hoped that Apple would reach 100 percent in-stock before the end of the month.
